My ResearchI work since 1983 in Institute of Oceanology, Polish Academy of Sciences in Sopot, Poland.
In years 1992-2000 I was the head of the Lidar Laboratory. Since January 2002, after returning from one year spent working in Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD (San Diego, CA), I have been the leader of Air-Sea Interaction Laboratory.
- Lidar research:
- studies of marine aerosol with multifrequency lidar system (ship and shore experiments, theoretical work on the inverse lidar problem).
- surface chlorophyll measurements with a fluorescence lidar.
- studies on utilization of a lidar system for remote measurements of oil film thickness.
- Monte-Carlo modelling of in-water light-fields to:
- studies of instrumentation effects on measured values of radiation and irradiation.
- studies of the theory of measurement of inherent optical properties of sea water and its components.
- work on developing a spectral model of light energy utilization by various components of sea-water for remote sensing studies of the Baltic.
- Air-sea interaction
- studies of bubble clouds produced by breaking waves
- studies of mass, energy, momentum and radiation fluxes across the sea surface
- M.Sc., Experimental Physics, University of Gdansk, Poland, 1983.
- Ph.D., Earth Science (Atmospherics Physics), Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, 1992.
- D. Sc.(in Polish: doktor habilitowany), Earth Science, Institute of Oceanology, Polish Academy of Sciences, Sopot, 2005.

- Twice (February-December 2001 and September-December 2002) at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD working on optical footprint of in-water bubble cloud (funded from an ONR HyCODE program grant)
- Two months (April-June 2003) at RSMAS, University of Miami modelling the response of turbulent in-water layers to a lidar remote sensing (running my Monte Carlo code on 9th and 56th world's most powerfuls computers - supercomputer ranking according to www.top500.org).
Major oceanographic cruises and experiments:
- R.V. Oceania (Polish ship), The Arctic Seas (Spitsbergen Bank, Greenland Sea); light attenuation; three cruises in 1987, 1988 and 1989, 7-8 weeks each.
- R.V. Arnold Veimar (Estonian/Soviet ship), Baltic and North Sea; lidar research of chlorophyll distribution; 4 weeks, 1989.
- BAEX international experiment (EU funded); Baltic shore of Poland; lidar research of aerosol concentration; two experiments in 1983, 1984, 2 weeks each.
- EOPACE aerosol experiment; Duck, North Carolina; lidar research of aerosol concentration; 3 weeks, March 1999.
- More than 30 short (7-10 days) cruises within the Polish Economic Exclusion Zone in the southern Baltic, R.V. Oceania, 1986-1999; apparent and inherent optical properties of the sea, lidar research of chlorophyll concentration and surface oil pollution.
